A young philosopher currently in a post-doc writes:
This fall I'll be teaching my first graduate-level seminar, and although I'm very secure in undergraduate teaching, I find that I'm extremely nervous about teaching this seminar, because I don't really know how to approach it. It seems like planning a good discussion is a whole different animal from planning a good lecture. I was hoping you might ask your readers if they have suggestions or advice for how to teach an effective and enjoyable seminar?
Thoughts from readers welcome, both teachers and grad students who have advice about particularly good seminars they have taken.
